Rotary International (RI)
Although you pay membership fees to a local club, when you join Rotary you are joining a worldwide organization with the shared values to serve others; to give something back; to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace by collectively utilising the skills, talents and energy of our members. It also means that you are welcome to attend any Rotary club meeting anywhere in the world (best to tell them you are coming though)
